I went to the Spine Dr yesterday( the 74 miles one way:()

He told me that the Flex X-rays that I had done the other night do NOT show the instability that my insurance wants to see to authorize my surgery. The tech didnt tell me how to bend;(

So he did another set and it shows EXACTALLY what they needed to see.......I am unstable,LOL:)

So now he is sending the letter to my insurance and they will FINALLY approve my surgery....YEA...I have one schedualed for the 28th of this month....2 level lumbar fusion with instrumentation(sp?)

I am nervous and excited to be pain free after I heal.....Now to get my house organised.......yea right,LOL!!

So I jusr wanted to share the exciting news....:):):)
